Overheating
When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

Acer aspire overheating fix


What model of acer apire ?
When a laptop gets hot physically hot, to the touch you know something isn\'t quite right. It\'s normal for a computer to get a bit warm as it runs, which is why computers have a built-in cooling fan in addition to a heatsink and cooling vents. Excessive heat, however, is almost always an indication that something is malfunctioning. This is no different with the Acer Aspire 5000.

What\'s Happened If you\'ve ever looked inside of a computer or seen an "exploded view" of a laptop, you will know that thousands of components work together to ensure your computer\'s best performance. The cooling fan is activated by temperature readings from the central processing unit, which heats up and cools down depending on what it is being used for. Sitting idle, the temperature of the CPU will be low and the fan won\'t come on. When the computer is performing a few tasks simultaneously, the CPU is taxed and the fan kicks in. When you hear the fan whirling excessively, the computer is overheating which can damage the CPU. Thermal compound is a sticky paste that is placed directly onto the CPU. http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Thermal-Compound-Roundup-February-2012/1490 Allowing for a more direct heat transfer between the CPU and HEAT SINK and preventing air gaps from forming between the CPU and heat sink. b> Checking Temperatures You can download programs to monitor the core temperature of your CPU. Programs like Core Temp, Speed Fan or Motherboard Monitor use the hardware monitoring devices built into your Aspire notebook to track its core temperature. Different sources suggest that the Aspire 5000 can run at a different maximum temperatures. Users on Tech Support Forum say 50 to 60 degrees Celsius is normal even optimal and that above 75 degrees is a problem. Acer\'s technical manual for the Aspire talks about external temperatures for running the computer efficiently (between minus 20 and 30 degrees), but it says nothing of internal temperatures. A few different users reported overheating to the point of 90 degrees, at which point the computer freezes and shuts off. Warranty Fix Computer original equipment manufacturers like Acer sell every computer with a limited warranty. Overheating is usually covered by this warranty. If your computer is repeatedly reaching high temperatures, and you\'ve recorded the temperatures with software, contact Acer for a replacement or a repair. Out-of-Warranty Fix The simplest way to address an overheating problem is to let the computer breathe a little. Make sure that you use it on a flat, hard surface so that air can pass to the fan easily and without interruption. You can buy laptop cooling pads at most computer stores that are designed with this in mind. As a complex fix for an out-of-warranty system, you can follow a picture tutorial from MPS Computers to replace the sealant around the heatsink with a new glue called Arctic MX-2. This glue allows more heat to escape and brings the core temperatures down about 10 degrees.

ACER APSPIRE 5742 TAKE ABOUT 10 TIMES TO BOOT UP.


If there is extreme heat inside the laptop, this happens. Clean the fan and put new thermal pste/thermal pad to processor and chipsets. Also check for power button problem or any stuck keys in the keypad.
Hope this helps

CS-W12DKR indoor fan motor thermal protection?


Thermal protection on motors is inside the motor and is supposed to reset when the winding cools down. There may be a red button reset on the exterior of the motor. The thermal protector consists of one or more heat-sensing elements built into the motor or motor-compressor, plus an external control device. The thermal protection is present to turn the motor off when excessive heat is generated within the motor circuitry, halting the temperature climb before it can burn up the motor.

Got blue screen (of death)....can't figure out what is wrong. Reset to factory settings does not work. I tried to use the recovery CD I'd made when I got the machine......very desperate !!


hi

Acer has issues with most of their machines that have AMD CPUs in them. Can't do much, its a heat sink (overheating) issue. i would suggest buying some thermal compound and apply it to the heat sink.
the other issue could be memory. RAM modules must be checked to see if they are the cause. if your blue screen includes an error message with the words "memory dump", you have incompatible memory modules.

let me know if this helps. - please do not rate my service if it does not work.

Acer laptop gets hot and turns off-acer replaced one fan under warranty. Still have prob. but war is out


Here's a link to how to clean your cpu cooling fan. The system does shut down due to a thermal cut off, so you want to keep the heat down. Use compressed air on all the air slots. Also open up the bottom and scrape the fan of dust, or whatever if dirty. If the fan doesn't come on you can get one online. They're fairly inexpensive.

Here's a fan purchase outfit. Use this link. If you don't see your system, give them a call as the 6530 may use a fan that's the same in another acer model. The vendor should know.

ACER ASPIRE 3000 gets power off after some time automatically


If the laptop shuts down by itself and deosn't boot up again after some time, then the problem could be an over heating problem. The CPU shuts down when it overheats (thermal shutdown) and it is usually caused by a faulty fan and or the fan and heat-sink is clogged with dust.
Check the fan and if it does not spin freely then replace the fan and or remove the dust from the fan and heat-sink assembly.

Acer Aspire 5003 Thermal Module


Greetings,
I believe that the 'silver pad' you are talking about is likely a thermal pad which creates intimate thermal contact in the same manner as a thermal compound. As long as the pad has not deteriorated then you can reuse it. If that helped please rate me well.
